Small Scale, Sustainable, IPM and Production Systems for Apples in Romania
USDA/OICD, RSED; Cornell University; University of Massachusetts
Romania, a country in eastern Europe, which is about the size of the state of Wyoming, has a long history of apple production. Production figures during the last several years show that it may be the ninth or tenth largest apple producing country in the world, with about 100,000 hectares of apples. During the last 10 to 20 years, most of the apples from Romania that have been sold outside of local village markets have been produced on large plantings of apples on state-owned farms or cooperatives. Most of the apple planting systems, which were originally adopted from Italian pomologists, are remarkably similar in all of the older established apple orchards on the state farms throughout the country.
